Swallow Your Doubt with Eve 6 at Trees.
Though we sit here waterlogged and full of barbecue, we can't help but think of what we're going to do tonight. Luckily, we don't have to strain our hungover brains too hard. There's plenty going on. Just in time for our high school reunion, that band that sung the most overplayed graduation song of the early aughts has decided to reunite. Plus, Dick Van Dyke is in town with his barbershop quartet and the DSO is doing a free concert in Exall Park. Oh, and there's another Ridley Scott classic showing in town on the big screen. Sleep is for the weak.
Eve 6 at Trees
Just the other day, we were saying to ourselves, “I wonder what ever happened to that one band whose song they played 14 times at our high school graduation? Really wish those guys would make more albums.” Well, it's our lucky day: Eve 6 is playing Trees tonight in support of their just-released Speak in Code.
Symphony in the Park at Exall Park
If it weren't for things like having to dress up, the high price of tickets, the stuffy atmosphere and the fact that you aren't allowed to talk or eat sandwiches during it, going to the symphony would be pretty kickass. By moving the whole shebang to the park — and throwing in a petting zoo to boot — the DSO has managed to fix these shortcomings.
The Big Movie: Thelma and Louise at The Magnolia
Much like those get-rid-of-cable-or-you'll-end-up-in-a-roadside-ditch commercials, Thelma and Louise is a sort of that window into a future that tells us we need to keep our road rage in check. Don't get pissed off at a trucker and shoot his gas tank — you'll end up purposely driving off a cliff with your best friend.
Dick Van Dyke and the Vantastix at The Winspear Opera House
As youngsters, the name Dick Van Dyke always made us giggle. It's kind of amazing that a guy with such a dirty-sounding name ever made it in show biz. Even more so that he's lasted 60 years. His latest venture is fronting a barbershop quartet called the Vantastix.
Open mic night at Dallas Comedy House
Somewhere in existence, there is a VHS tape of you being caught off guard by the prompt to “Say something funny!” Well, you blew it. You froze. But it's OK. We've all been there. Dallas Comedy House gives you a chance to redeem yourself tonight with their open mic night.
